Skinnamarink

This week we’re celebrating Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day with a song that always reminds me of childhood thanks to Sharon, Lois, and Bram.

I’ve significantly simplified the chords and transposed them into C to make them easier for playing in storytime. The most common version you’ll find online is in G, like this one at Doctor Uke, and is heavily influenced by Sharon, Lois and Bram. The original version was written by Felix Feist and Al Piantadosi in 1910 as part of a musical.
